750 into tulip. Poured a dark brown with a big head that dissipated pretty quickly. The aroma was of spices and some malty sweetness. The flavor just didn't come up to what I have experienced with other brews of this genre. To me it drank as a starter beer for someone interested in exploring Belgians. I've had dubbels with more intensity - and certainly every "strong ale" had more punch. I guess just not for me. As I age my palate may be requiring more intensity and has some trouble with subtlety.

Honestly, I am a huge fan of Delirium beers. I don't traditionally like dark beers like this, but this really gives Delirium Tremens a run for its money.

Pours a thick solid head that stands for awhile then slowly falls. Smells rich and fruity with a hint of spices that may or not be there. The flavors are very complex and difficult to nail woth notes of dried fruits. The smell betrays the taste buds and keeps the beer from being as could as it could be. Good beer but i prefer the delirium tremens.

As its written on it, it's a strong dark triple distilled beer with an intense flavor and a sparkly feel. You get a coffee smell and after taste which hides also a bit of a sourness.

This is one of my favorite beers. Every time I have it, I wish I had more of it!

Go grab yourself a bottle and see what you think of it!

For a dark brew it had a light mouth feel and the sour was tuned well. I would get another soon.

Too much carbon hydrated to my liking. Not to so much body complexity. Prefer the normal Delirium.

From www.cervezasespeciales.com. Although its not bad, it isn't close, by far, to the delirium tremens.

Nice beer, little over carbonated but excellent taste. Couldn´t chat with the pink elephant, maybe you need a few.

Not sure why this is rated so high. As soon as i opened the bottle i couldn't get the head to calm its shit. finally started pouring it. looks super dark which you would think would be a good sign. taste isnt all that great unless you like copper. and it doesnt feel smooth at all. too bubbly and feels more like drinking a soft drink. i disapprove...

Poured several fingers of tan head, great retention and light lacing. Darker brown and some cloudiness, with some orange shining through. Smells like brown sugar and malt with hints of apple. Tastes fruity--pears and pineapple, with notes of cherries and apple. Brown sugar appears most as an after-taste. Medium bodied and doesn't present much for a lingering sensation. Light carbonation feel. Overall, I like it quite a bit as a unique style, although it doesn't seem much like a traditional Belgian. Some sort of hybrid. Very pleasant, yet expensive, so I'll buy again, just not that often.

I've had a long relationship with this Champ. Excels both in Flavor and Buzz.

This one was built up a lot by stores we frequent. It's a nice, standard, darker belgian, but is nothing special. Smooth and good taste.

Not a bad beer just not my style but not worth the 12 bucks per bottle.

A friend of mine wanted me to try this years ago and finally got the chance. Worth the wait.

A: Pours a dark brown with a large, sticky head. Carbonation came up in particular spots at the brim, forming three small circles, which looked kind of cool, I suppose.
S: First note was brown sugar, with a little malt. Very nice.
T: A very good combination of dark, small fruity notes, malt, and deep bready notes. I like this a lot.
MF: Doesn't seem to linger at all on the palate.
O: One of my favorites now. As someone else pointed out, it's a great deep blend without a single sharp note.

Pours a cloudy dark reddish brown color with off-white head. Dark fruits, spice, anise, and caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very complex, very good.

Never had this one before. Dark cola with HUGE head. Lots of cling. Smell sucks, as it is cellarish and musty. Probably too cold. Taste is very nice. Big malt, lots of belgian yeast. Mouth is medium to heavy, way huge carb and good balance. Not a session beer, but nice to try.
